CruzTOOLS announces motorcycle socket set

CruzTOOLS today announced three new Socket Bit Sets for home, shop, and pit use. Motorcycles, ATVs, and snowmobiles make widespread use of set and cap screws that require hex Allen or Torx wrenches. Sizes can range from 2.5mm to 3/8î for hex style, and T10 to T55 for Torx. Use of tools with loose tolerances or inferior materials can quickly result in damaged fasteners.

CruzTOOLS includes the most commonly needed hex and Torx wrenches in their tool kits, but home and shop tool boxes should contain comprehensive socket bit sets to handle all needs. As a result, the company has introduced three new sets for Powersport enthusiasts: a 10-piece Inch Hex Bit Set ($24.95), an 8-piece Metric Hex Bit Set ($22.95), and 10-Piece Torx Bit Set ($29.95).

Quality is comparable to top professional tools, with polished chrome bodies and heat-treated chrome vanadium bits that exceed ANSI specifications. All sockets are 3/8î drive for compatibility with the most common ratchet and T-Driver sizes, and contain an easy-to-read reverse laser imprint of size for quick identification.

Like other CruzTOOLS products, hand tools are lifetime guaranteed, but more importantly, absolutely dependable when needed.

ìWhile consumers have other choices when it comes to sockets, Iím constantly reminded how poor alternative options really are,î stated Dan Parks, President of CruzTOOLS. ìTop professional sets are really nice, but prohibitively expensive. Many consumer tool manufacturers combine both 1/4î and 3/8î within a single set, requiring the inconvenience of two different ratchets. Finally, the vast majority of low-cost socket sets donít meet the quality standards riders expect and deserve. Our new sets provide high quality at an affordable price, and help keep your socket drawer organized.

CruzTOOLS provides highly functional tools and tool kits to the powersports and music product industries, which are sold through dealers and distributors internationally.
